AllMusic Review by

With the dust and the haze of the decades cleared, it’s now apparent that Lynyrd Skynyrd in their original configuration were one of the greatest rock bands to come out of the South, or anywhere in America for that matter, and the band’s legacy, based around classic songs like “Sweet Home Alabama” and the iconic, ever-unwinding “Free Bird,” is assured. This 16-track set collects the original band's signature tracks, including both of the above, as well as "Gimme Three Steps," "Saturday Night Special," and more.
